The Insider


It has been a memorable 24 hours for the West Ham United following the historic first game to be played at the new Stadium and the convincing victory in the Europa League which saw the Hammers qualify for the play-off round.

There looks to be more good news for Slaven Bilic as my sources have told me that the Club are set to make a substantial signing within the next 72 hours.

The Club have been linked with a number of top forwards throughout the summer and they now look set to finally land one of their targets.

Reports in the media have also suggested that the Club were close to securing a loan move for Inter Milan defender Davide Santon.

But it is my understanding that the move has fallen through and the Club are now looking at other targets.

With Aaron Cresswell ruled out for three to four months, the Club were not prepared to take any risks over signing another left back and hope for more news on another defender in the next few days.
